Little Rock 2020 Soup Sunday

Holy minestrone! Soup season is fast approaching – and with it, one of Central Arkansas’s most beloved events. Mark your calendars and plan to join us from 4 – 7 p.m. on February 23, 2020 at the Statehouse Convention Center for the 39th annual Little Rock Soup Sunday!

It’s easy to see why everyone loves this casual, family-friendly, “souper” fun event. Between 1,500 – 2,000 soup lovers join us each year to knock back delicious soups, breads and desserts from Central Arkansas’s favorite restaurants. We’ve got the list of restaurants and their offerings started, and we can’t wait to see what this year’s featured chef, Trace Munday of Sauce(d), is spooning up for our guests!

Silent and live auctions will please even the most discriminating of shoppers, we’ll have activities for the kids, and there’ll be music to keep people of all ages on the dance floor. Event chairs Ryan and Kimberly Davis invite you to bring your friends and family, grab your muffin tin (“Um…what?” Don’t worry, here’s an explainer) and get ready to have a great time!

Best of all, there’s no more important cause: the future of Arkansas’s kids. Proceeds benefit AACF’s work to ensure that all children have the resources and opportunities they need to lead healthy, productive lives and to reach their full potential.

Tickets are available for purchase below. Individual adult tickets are $35; Kids 5-17 are $10; kids under 5 are free! Patron Room tickets are $60 per person.

With a Patron Room ticket, get access to a VIP space where you’ll enjoy soup and special goodies from Sauced that won’t be available in the main ballroom, plus complimentary beer and wine. And of course, you don’t have to stay in the Patron Room – you’ll also have access to all the soups, snacks, auctions, and fun we can pack into the main ballroom. What’s not to like?

NEW THIS YEAR! AACF is using Eventbrite to process Soup Sunday tickets. When you buy your tickets, you will receive an email from Eventbrite with your tickets attached. You can print your ticket if you’d like, or just bring your phone with the email and tickets. If you have questions, give us a call!


We’d love to have you join us as a sponsor! Businesses, organizations, families, and individuals can sponsor Soup Sunday – and so can you! Here are the sponsorship levels. Email Fran Carter at fcarter@aradvocates.org or call 501-371-9678, ext. 107 for more information.
